Steel to Steel: Bright ideas from Pittsburgh

2020/06/12
Pittsburgh and Hamilton are two steel cities forced to fight the recession in the traditional manufacturing economy, which are trying to find a new path.
Pittsburgh is often regarded as a model for economic reconstruction.
The three magazines named it the most livable city in the United States.
Major tech companies like Google and Apple are there.
CBC Hamilton went to Pittsburgh and found three successful cases where there could be applications, from a warehouse full of artwork to a community program known for driving
Shooting at a family
Friendly party.
This is the first of these stories.
* The first floor has a light exhibition, including a room where you can run along the wall with your hands, sit down and a constellation will appear in front of you when your eyes adjust.
On the other floor, there is an exhibition called \"written room\" where fluid Persian spreads on the floor and walls and golf balls roll on the floor.
Bright ideas from Pittsburgh to Hamilton: Mattress Factory tomorrow: non
The profit foundation to save historic buildings on Thursday: The other floor is Greer Larkton\'s beautiful and weird work, a community plan for economic revival.
This is a model of the artist\'s apartment, which is filled with colorful dolls and a corpse covered with a bottle of medicine from the late transgender artist.
This is an old warehouse decorated with five-story art installations.
This is a concept of Pittsburgh because of its vibrant art culture and rich vacant industrial buildings.
This is a concept that can work in a city like Hamilton.
The Mattress Factory attracts about 75,000 people a year, alongside the Andy Warhol Museum of Art tourism in Pittsburgh.
On the war Street in Mexico on the north shore of the city, it filled a previously vacant warehouse and recently filled three other vacant buildings.
It has the installation of about 15 artists, and artists from all over the world are calling for display there.
Economic impact of the Mattress Factory: The museum attracts more than 75,000 visitors every year.
Tourists and staff contributed about $3.
2 million of the local economy.
The two categories with the largest visitor income are those who earn less than $10,000 a year or between $50 and $75,000 a year.
Of the tourists surveyed, 37 had a bachelor\'s degree and more than 20 had a graduate degree.
Most of the respondents who visited for the first time classified themselves as \"temporary customers\" of art \".
More than half of the visitors said they would visit at least one other attraction on the north side.
House prices in North Central rose from $60,000 in 1997 to $100,000 in 2006.
The existence and project of the museum makes the neighborhood more attractive to buyers, which is \"very reasonable \".
Source: Stephanie Vegh, executive director of the Hamilton arts committee at Carnegie Mellon University\'s Center for Economic impact studies, dreams of such a thing here.
\"I\'m a huge fan of programming at the Mattress Factory,\" she said . \".
\"This is a great model.
Pittsburgh is one of the typical cities in Hamilton because there is a lot of industrial space and culture there.
\"Of course, I think it\'s a good model.
\"The Mattress Factory took root in 1977 when artist Barbara ludowski bought the vacant warehouse for $10,000.
Pittbaugh erowski said Pittsburgh\'s reputation at the time was still poor and was called \"the end of the world \".
She moved into the building, lived there and set up a vegetarian cooperative
Op and her own woodworking studio
Other artists in and out.
Our goal, she said, is to build a community of like-minded people.
Soon, she registeredprofit status.
The same is true of the source of revenue.
Admission fee for mattress factory ($15)
There are gift shops and cafes.
But it also relies on funding from government and community foundations and extensive fund-raising activities.
Its biggest fundraiser is the summer garden party.
In the early days of the mattress factory, Luderowski and co-
Director Michael Olijnyk has published two ads in art magazine.
In addition to the occasional call for specific exhibition proposals, they have not had to advertise since then.
Their last phone call received works from more than 600 artists.
Only six.
According to Luderowski, artists go to the exhibition from all over the world because they are treated so well that they have both resources and freedom from constraints.
\"Michael is an artist and I am an artist,\" she said . \".
\"The language is there.
The process of thinking is there.
\"The contributors to the mattress factory include: the Allegheny County community and infrastructure Tourism Foundation in the federal state of Pennsylvania, department of Community and Economic Development Museum and Library Services Institute lambda Foundation National City Bank Foundation National Arts Endowment Foundation Visual Arts Foundation National Arts Endowment Foundation
We give them a space to create with unprecedented help.
\"The Mattress Factory has grown through fundraising and frugal financial management.
It now occupies three other buildings nearby, including two installation storefronts and a temporary residence of up to seven visiting artists.
The job is all-inclusive, says Luderowski.
\"It will consume you.
The motivation you need to be an artist is that you don\'t pay attention to any part of your life other than what you\'re doing, and for me it\'s really a loop.
\"But she is also aware of the impact.
In 2006, Carnegie Mellon University did an economic impact study and found that the ithe museum contributed $3.
2 million of the local economy.
It may also inspire tourists to visit other nearby attractions.
House prices also rose in the middle of the North Shore.
At 1997, a single average price
Home housing is $60,000, almost doubling in 10 years.
\"While we can\'t specify the exact contribution of the mattress plant to this trend, it seems very, because the presence, projects and events of the mattress plant play a role in exposing potential risks
Become residents of the area, even if they increase their attractiveness as a place of residence, \"the report said.
Jeremy Freiburger, chief connector for Cobalt Connects, was part of the 2010 delegation, which was and-
Mayor Fred Eisenberg
Our goal is to hear from Hamilton.
The Mattress Factory is not part of the trip, he said.
But he believes the concept can be spread here.
He said this is the vision of the Sherman 270 development.
\"Hamilton will definitely support the creation of the work. \"Vegh hopes so.
In a perfect world, she says, it will be on the beach.
\"Space is always a huge challenge for artists here, and we have some artists with skills and technical skills who all work in smaller spaces,\" she said . \".
\"Having the space to get them to work on an industrial scale can change the rules of the game. \"[
